Suspended for hugging a female classmate during a school fest, a17 year old boy from Kerala scores a brilliant 91.2% in CBSE class 12th exam.
The teen was not able to attend classes for a period of four months. The boy was a student at St Thomas Central School in Mukkolakkal, Thiruvananthapuram.
By scoring an 87 in English, 99 in Economics, 90 in Business Studies, 88 in Accountancy and 92 in Psychology, he cleared the exam with flying colours.
The teen boy and girl were suspended for “a long hug in the school and intimate pictures in their private Instagram accounts”. They were allowed to appear for the exam only after Shashi Tharoor’s intervention.
“Our son has been permitted to take his exams, since classes for class XIIth are over. We will still challenge the high court order in an appeal to expunge the extreme remarks against the teenagers in its judgment,” said the boy’s father.
The 17 year old approached The Child Rights Commission which had ordered the school to take back both the students. The school then challenged the orders in High Court. However, the High Court stated that school can take the decision on disciplinary basis.
